Published on: Friday, January 24, 2014

Kota Kinabalu: Sabah's MyWatch chairperson Kenny Chua commended the swift action by the police in closing the case of a wanted man, who had burnt his brother-in-law's house in Taman Semarak, Tawau on Dec 5 last year.

"The swift action by the police in locating Chang Kock Ying at a premises in Kg Maang, Penampang within a few hours after he was spotted in Putatan had clearly shown the commitment, experience and efficiency possessed by the investigation team," he said.

Chua who is also the Penampang Keadilan Deputy Chairman said this during his visit to L/Kpl Andy at the QEH II who was injured when the man ran over him using a Proton Iswara. "Time after time, the investigation team had shown outstanding performances and this will send a clear signal to others who are planning any criminal act that they will not be able to hide from the police should they insist with their plan.

But most importantly, the people of Sabah particularly those in Penampang, will know that even though the police personnels' own life are at stake when on duty, they are serious in maintaining law and order," he added.

Meanwhile, Chua also urged the police to immediately close once and for all the illegal cyber-gambling premises all over the district of Penampang which have become a real menace.

"By leaving these illegal cyber-gambling premises to flourish without any form of persecution, it will eventually be a menace to the society and in which the good people of Penampang will never forget nor forgive those who did nothing during their tenure as the authorities in our current timeline," he said.
